Salman Rushdie - Bigots claims

“One of the things that is a classic trope of the religious bigot, is while they’re denying people their rights, they claim that their rights are being denied. While they are persecuting people, they claim to be persecuted. While they are behaving colossally offensively, they claim to be the offended party. It's upside down world." ~ Salman Rushdie

"Frightening" because he has to live (or rather "succeed in not being killed") with the result of an advanced stage of what I am seeing, every day.
